Bean Boot owners: just bought the last pair in store last night. size 10. i am usually a size 11. bought the Bean Socks too. they are still...a bit loose. i can feel that they're slightly loose when i walk. not a ton, but maybe 1/4 - 1/3" from toe to front of boot.

should i try a size 9 (they didn't have any in stock so i'd have to order online - which is also back ordered)

thanks!

Leather, canvas, nylon, other? Wheels, no wheels? Available in store (where?) or online only? And etc.

"Decent" just isn't as specific as one might like.

 

Yeah sorry, should have been more specific.

Leather or canvas preferably, though no problem with nylon necessarily. Probably no wheels. Either online, or available in stores in the UK.

In your price range I'd look at Floto.

From today:




The pulling at the buttoning point is an artefact of the pose this time around. It had been resolved to my satisfaction - none when in a neutral pose.

I don't have any valuable insight into the fit - looks pretty good to my untrained eye. I like the height of the gorge and length of the jacket. Seems classic.

One thought: are those quarters intentionally closed? They appear awfully closed to my eyes. I've struggled with this over the years on my MTM suits (mostly with Southwick, less so with Samuelsohn) and tend to favor the visual appearance of open quarters. I can't tell how tall you are in that photo, but I'm 5'10" and wish I were 6'0" and feel like closed quarters make my suits look boxy...and certainly don't make me look any taller/leaner. Whereas with open quarters I can more easily delude myself into thinking I'm aristocratically tall...:embar:

If it's intentional, then your suit successfully achieves your goal. If it's unintentional, you might consider opening them up a bit. I've had this done ex post facto to two Southwick MTM suits by a random tailor, and the results were good and price was right, so I'm assuming it's not a complex alteration...

want to add this re: open vs closed quarters; looks like someone said it pretty well once upon a time:

I am desperate to find these exact glasses Aaron Sorkin wore on Bloomberg. Anyone know the brand, style and where to buy? Any/all of that info would be ever so appreciated!

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

That they are KC one could almost guess from the hideous, square toe and whatever else the fuck is going on there. They would best be worn with highly flammable pants that are also able to incinerate the shoes simultaneously.

They're a pretty simple loafer, and will be fine with dark dressy jeans, and chinos. They feel too casual for a sport coat and trousers to me. You would not raise any eyebrows wearing them with a sc/trousers, however. My $0.02

KC is not, of course, a luxury brand, but I think those are a Perfectly fine casual shoe. I know I'll be shouted down by cries of "WITCH!" but I don't mind the toe. There are better out there, sure, but those ones are fine for casual dress.
Efectly

Aladin shoes, best worn in white though and standing on a carpet.

I don't want to deprive you of your martyr complex, but I think the huge square toe, awkward side stitching and cheap perforated leather are all elements generally deemed beyond redemption both individually or in combination.

It's not perfectly fine. It's not OK.
